On a scale of 1 to 10, having an air and water-tight home is probably an 11 in terms of importance. In order for your new home to stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and completely dry on the inside, it must be encased in a high-quality, top-performing, long-lasting barrier material.
That's why we've partnered with Hallmark Building Supplies, an exclusive provider of Tyvek® HomeWrap® to ensure that our homes are protected using the best housewrap product available on the market.
A lot of science goes into making each sheet of Tyvek® HomeWrap®. This protective barrier is made of flash-spun, high-density polyethylene that keeps water and air out, but allows vapors to travel through. That's important if moisture ever accumulates inside of your house – Tyvek® HomeWrap® will allow it to escape, keeping your exterior walls dry.
Tyvek® HomeWrap® is applied around the entire exterior of your home before siding goes up, and while the material itself is superior, it must be installed properly to do its job. Hubbell Homes has been the only Tyvek®-certified builder in the Des Moines area for the last 15 years. Our superintendents and subcontractors all receive eight hours of instructor-led training to ensure that the material is properly installed, and that any openings in the barrier — outlets, pipes, windows, etc. — are all correctly sealed. We take these extra steps to ensure that you never have to worry about water leaks or drafty rooms in your Hubbell home.
Hubbell Homes is proud to be a partner of both Tyvek® and Hallmark Building Supplies. We only partner with the most dependable vendors who provide us with the highest quality products on the market and are experts in their fields. The result is a comfortable, safe, well-built home that you and your family can enjoy for a lifetime.
